The data collection for these 87 countries was sponsored by the EC/DEVCO, NORAD/the Norwegian Research Council and The Ministries of Foreign Affairs in Denmark and Canada. It is now possible to perform detailed analysis of the causes, effects and sequencing of democracy using sophisticated online analysis tools. For instance, interactive graphing tools enable users to access regional and country analyses in an easy way.

Meanwhile, we continue to collect data and will complete this phase during 2014. Two years of successful data collection has generated nearly 13 million data points thus far. V-Dem will provide access to data for the remaining countries of the world by fall 2015, thanks to the additional support of The Ministry of Foreign Affairs-Sweden, the Research Councils of Sweden and Denmark, NORAD/the Norwegian Research Council, and the Quality of Government Institute. By then, the database will include more than 20 million data points on democracy!
